JUDGING by the reaction to last week's column, I would be as welcome at a Celtic supporters' club bash as a letter from the taxman!
Hoops fans, including Chris Sutton and Rod Stewart, were infuriated I dared to say Celtic's nine-in-a-row achievement was "hollow and tainted" as they had not won the title on the pitch.
I stated I felt sorry for the Celtic players and there would always be an asterisk against this year's Championship as it wasn't completed.
There was outrage, claims of "sh*thousery" by Sutton and cries of derision.
I stand by my comments wholeheartedly, and if the Celtic supporters removed their green and white blinkers for the time it takes to read the article, they would soon realise they missed the point entirely.
Celtic were the prominent example last week after being awarded the Scottish Premiership. They are a high-profile UK club, but my viewpoint stands for every league throughout Europe. I could easily have been discussing PSG in France, Club Brugge in Belgium and Connah's Quay Nomads in Wales.
Unless you are able to finish the league, it should be declared null and void, with no title awarded, no promotion and no relegation.
I was vehemently opposed to Hearts being relegated in last week's column and to Leeds United and my old club West Brom being promoted from the Championship in England, but those valid points seems to have been overlooked.
And any talk of a points per game theory, on previous matches, is a nonsense. This is not fantasy football we are playing.
Through a lack of clarity in their guidelines, UEFA have left 'season end' procedures open to interpretation by the relevant associations, and I feel this is wrong.
There should be a blanket decision on what happens if a league is unable to be completed. Each country is simply allowed to make the rules up as they go along.
Scotland and Belgium have gone ahead and abandoned their seasons, naming the respective leaders when suspension was called due to the Covid-19 crisis as champions.
But the Dutch league, in my opinion, have done it in the correct manner.
Seeing an inability to finish their season, they called it off and announced the league campaign null and void.
Ajax, steeped in incredible football history, were leading the league on goal difference from AZ Alkmaar at the time, but they were denied their 35th Dutch Championship and RKC Waalkwijk avoided relegation.
It was obviously a difficult situation for Ajax to accept, but they did so with good grace.
The Dutch have done it in such a classy way.
This is what should happen in the Danske Bank Premiership when the inevitable occurs and the NI Football League announce the season to be over.
I know my good friend David Healy wants Linfield, as the current leaders, to be named champions and to receive the bulk of the European money, but I strongly believe leagues should only be decided on the football pitch, 11 v 11, with a few subs thrown in. If that is not the case, then scrap the season.
I know it's hard on the players and management teams who have given their all for 80 per cent of the season, but the bottom line is it's not complete and therefore should not be considered valid.
Would you move into a house that was only 80 per cent complete without the roof on it? No, you would only consider moving in when it is completely finished, and I look upon a football season in the same way.
Sadly, due to a lack of leadership on the part of UEFA, I feel football will soon be played out in the courts.
Hearts, who had 24 points to play for, have made it clear they will pursue legal proceedings and I would say any club that is relegated after a boardroom or Zoom discussion - and who have the means - will go to court to try and save themselves.
It's a sad state of affairs. Not only is the integrity of football being called into question, but the spirit of the game is, too.
During this Covid-19 pandemic, there has been so much goodwill built up in society, but football, I feel, is slowly eroding that through selfish endeavours.
The Eredivisie in the Netherlands showed tremendous leadership, made the hard but correct call and is an example to all.
Just a pity those in power at UEFA couldn't have shared the same foresight when setting out their ambiguous guidelines to the leagues across Europe.
Unless you are able to finish the league, it should be declared null and void
